International law-dual degree program


The Lord
Hi everyone,
I am experiencing a great dilemma as I have to choose between two great programs: the Sciences Po-Georgetown Dual Degree in International Affairs and Law and the LLM in International Legal Studies at NYU.
Is there anyone who attended the dual degree program and may share his/her own experience??

Any suggestion on how to choose is more than welcome!

Hi, following this post because I have also been admitted to the Sciences Po Georgetown Dual Degree programme (it was the only programme I applied to) and have been trying to make my decision - and haven't managed to speak to any one who's done the Dual Degree programme. I do think it's a great programme, but the lack of funding is really making it a tough decision. Has Georgetown offered you funding?

Hey, a friend of mine completed this LLM a couple years ago. He said it was more suited to people studying finance/tax/international economic policy (in terms of career prospects versus funding opportunities) and that if he had to do it again, he would have chosen another LLM with funding.

Therefore I would say that if funding isn't an issue for you, go for the dual LLM. However keep in mind that the ILS LLM is probably better known in the field.

If funding is an issue, go for the ILS LLM. It's a shorter program, I have only heard good feedback from people who attended it, and I am 99% convinced that it will take you as far as the dual degree. It just depends on what you do with it :).

I hope this helped a little ! x

Hi Akria,

I have also been admitted but still struggling with funding. Any luck yet?

Hey Florapa,

I too have been admitted into the dual degree between Georgetown and Sciences Po. Mind me asking how your friend funded it?>

Hi Kudzi,

No luck yet. I was offered a 10,000 rebate from Gtown, and that's it. I could not fund it, the two tuition fees plus staying were just too expensive, especially since it's more than likely I would have just come back to my country to work! So I decided not to do it actually and reapply to it, and shorter, 1 year programmes for next year for two reasons:
- 1 year will be easier to fund
- other schools might be better known than Georgetown back home
- I will apply for more scholarships - though a lot of the scholarships were not available for the two year programme.

Let me know what you decide!
